Kickapoo women charged with trespass to go to trial

Three Kickapoo women who participated in a takeover of the tribal offices will go to trial on trespass charges August 13.

Auchee Wahpepah, Valentina Jimenez and Glenda Deer began their occupation of the headquarters in late December. They were protesting the refusal of chairman Tony Salazar to leave office. He had been ousted in a recall election.

The protest ended when tribal police stormed the offices on January 2 and arrested the three women.
